Stash buster: 5 tiny hat ornaments for your Christmas tree

You know when you have a really good idea for a craft? I mean, a really,  really good idea? Something you think is so brilliant you don't tell anyone because you know that, someday, someone will want you to reveal it to the world? I have those all the time.  Then I Google them and realize that approximately 7 million people are just as brilliant as – but faster than – me. Nestor is not amused. And so it went with my idea for knitting little hats as Christmas ornaments. I figured it was a great way to use up small, annoying bits of leftover yarn. Hats are a fun knit anyway, and tiny ones are just that much cuter. It's like knitting a sweater for a baby vs. one for your adult sister. Baby knits always win. So now that I know how brilliant so many people are, here are 5 of my favourites, for your knitting pleasure. 5 Tiny Hat Ornaments to Make for Your Christmas Tree
  1. Tiny Toques from Just Crafty Enough, good for elves and miniature skiers
  2. The Jayne Cobb Hat Brooch by Eva Wu, perfect for Firefly fans who'd rather wear their ornaments than put them on a tree
  3. Tunisian Mini Hat, for crocheters who want to try out the Tunisian crochet technique without committing to something huge, from Inner Child Crochet
  4. Winter Hat Ornaments (that are brilliant but not actually knitted) from Good Knits
  5. Santa hat, plus a fuzzy wreath from Canadian Living's own archives
Happy crafting!
